Objective

Within many broad acre crop species, cultivars have been found to vary in sensitivity to commonly used herbicides and tank mixes, thereby resulting in potential grain yield loss, and hence reduced farm profit. With funding from GRDC and State Government Agencies across Australia, a series of cultivar by herbicide tolerance trials are conducted annually. The trials aim to provide grain growers and advisers with information on cultivar sensitivity to commonly used in-crop herbicides and tank mixes for a range of crop species including:

  • wheat
  • barley
  • triticale
  • oats
  • lupins
  • peas
  • lentils
  • chickpeas
  • faba beans

The intention is to provide data from at least two years of testing at the time of wide scale commercial propagation of a new cultivar.

Herbicide Tolerance Trial Protocols are provided to outline the methodology and purpose behind the trials.

Results

The documents provided are from the GRDC funded Herbicide Tolerance Screening projects. This is not part of the NVT program but has been provided as relevant varietal information.
